Sometimes networking at conferences can be challenging, especially when surrounded by hundreds of attendees. But fear not! We’ve got this short video clip with top tips on how to approach people from seasoned pros and past attendees.🤗

  1. Be Approachable:

A friendly smile and approachable body language can work wonders. Don’t be afraid to make the first move; others are likely just as eager to connect as you are. Especially, with such a stellar lineup in Lisbon – feel free to come up to a speaker and ask extra questions!

  1. Break the Ice:

Starting a conversation can be as simple as complimenting someone’s work or asking about their favorite game or the project they are working on. Find common ground to kickstart discussions.

  1. Elevator Pitch:

Prepare a concise pitch about yourself and your work. Being able to introduce yourself makes it easier for others to remember you and your interests. If you’re looking for inspiration for your presentation, consider attending the Public Pitch where you can learn from developers on stage.

  1. Set Realistic Goals:

It could be as simple as meeting three new people per day. This helps you stay focused and ensures meaningful connections. If you’re staying at the event venue, it can also facilitate more opportunities for networking. So, if you’re attending DevGAMM Lisbon, you’ll appreciate our special offer to stay at the Oitavos.

  1. Attend Workshops and Roundtable discussions:

Not only are they extremely informative, they’re also great places to meet people who share your interests. Engage in post-session discussions, and you might find yourself connecting with fellow attendees. Not sure what to ask? Get some insights from our session recordings on YouTube.

  1. Utilize Meeting Systems:

They allow you to schedule one-on-one meetings with specific attendees, making it easier to connect. For instance, DevGAMM uses the PINE meeting system which will go live a few weeks prior to the upcoming event in Lisbon.

  1. Attend After-Hours Events:

Don’t limit your networking to official conference hours. Informal gatherings provide an excellent opportunity to build relaxed connections. Additionally, consider VIP events to connect with high-level attendees and speakers. At DevGAMM Lisbon, VIP tickets are in high demand and limited in availability, so be sure to secure yours promptly.

  1. Bring business cards:

Remember to have your business cards ready, whether in printed or digital format. Alternatively, a simple QR code linked to your LinkedIn profile displayed on your mobile screen can make contact exchange a breeze.

  1. Follow Up:

After the conference, send follow-up messages to those you connected with. Mention specific points from your conversation to jog their memory. This keeps the connection alive and may lead to collaborations or future discussions.

  1. Be Patient:

Building a strong network takes time. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. Nurture your connections, and they will grow over time.

Wishing you a fantastic networking experience at DevGAMM Lisbon 2023!
